Daily Calorie Needs for Individuals Weighing 151 to 160 Pounds

Defining the Body's Energy Requirements
The difference in weighing 151 pounds and 160 pounds for an inactive, moderately and active individual amounts to a little over 100 calories.
For example, if Wendy is inactive and weighs 151 pounds and Jill is inactive and weighs 160 pounds - only a tab over 100 calories separates their daily caloric intake.
If Jill would consume about 100 kcals less per day her weight would drop to 151 pounds.
If Wendy were to increase her activity level from inactive to active she could consume more kcals.
If she decided not to consume more calories because she needed to lose weight, those extra pounds will slowly drop.
Therefore, one of the best methods for losing extra pounds is to base calorie intake on the Inactive Column of our Calorie Needs Chart and to add activity to your daily routine. The extra pounds will quickly vanish safely.
Keep in mind that caloric needs are based on several factors - not just activity level.
Therefore everyone's needs will vary. Other influencing factors include height, body frame size, current weight, age, muscle mass, current level of health and gender.
Calorie Needs for Individuals 151 to 160 Pounds
Those that weigh 151 pounds and lead an inactive lifestyle require about 1960 kcals daily.
For moderate activity the energy requirements are 2265 and for active, 2567.
These are of course, calculated estimates as energy needs are constantly shifting due to the level of activity, state of health and other influencing factors.
Individuals that weigh 160 pounds the energy needs are: Inactive Lifestyle, 2080, Moderate Level at 2400 and Active Lifestyle at 2720 kcals.
A Body in Balance
The human body is in a constant state of working to remain in balance. It's a busy little thing.
Keep this in mind; most individuals don't take the time to add up the amount of energy contained in the foods that they eat, much less the types of food which satisfy the Food Group most minimum recommendations.
Yet, when it comes to the number on the bathroom scales, more often than not - as long as the person continues to eat normally and not over indulge, the number is pretty much the same day after day.
It takes a big nudge to see a movement in the readings - both an upwards or downwards spiral. Starting a controlled daily eating plan were kcals are closely monitored is just one way to see the numbers start to decrease. To see an increase, a binge will certainly accomplish such.
Example of 151 to 160 Pounds: 2,000 - 3,000 Kcals Daily, Including Recommended Food Group Servings

When planning your daily diet it's important to carefully place the Food Group Building Blocks on your Plate. Because calories for individuals weighing 151, 152, 153, 154, 155, 156, 157, 158, 159 and 160 pounds closely mirror the 2000 and the 3000 calorie daily diets, both make an excellent pattern when choosing serving sizes from the Food Groups.
